Description

Join me for this amazing glacier trek from Chamonix (France) to **Zermatt (**Switzerland), following the traditional Haute Route.

Our trip will start in Chamonix. During this 7-day adventure, we'll trek over glaciers and passes, and spend the night in fully catered Alpine huts.

You'll just have to take a small backpack. The rest is about enjoying a great trip around some of the most beautiful areas in the Alps.

Although you don't need any climbing skills, you should be in good shape to trek between 5 and 8 hours a day.

If you want to experience the mythical Haute Route, please contact me! We can make a plan together for this great adventure.

In case you are a more experienced climber, you can check other mountaineering trips I organize in Switzerland, like this ascent to the iconic Matterhorn.

Equipment: The idea here is to minimize everything. You will only need 30 liter backpack for all things. Toothpaste for example can be eliminated all together or just a small tube will do. Take your time to find small quantities of these items or place into smaller containers.

Mountain Guide

I'm a Swiss trained, American born, mountain guide living in Verbier, Switzerland. I guide my clients backcountry skiing in winter and mountaineering in the summer. Many of my clients are repeat clients with whom I have been sharing experiences together for over 20 years.

I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii. Helping my father break horses as soon as I could walk certainly helped me acquire a taste of adventure. I left the Hawaiian islands to attend JSC in northern Vermont and discovered winter. Majoring in Urban and Environmental planning increased my desire to explore the outdoors, and with the ski slopes of northern Vermont in my back yard, the addiction to winter skiing and ice climbing and summer rock climbing set in.

I moved to Verbier, Switzerland in 1983. Some of my climbing partners were local guides and encouraged me to enter the Swiss Mountain Guide’s Training program. I began my first course in the winter of ’91 and received my UIAGM status two and a half years later.

I'm passionate about my guiding and sharing these alpine and maritime experiences with my clients. Over the years, they have become very close friends and through mutual confidence, are able to extend their reach further and further into the mountains. My approach through cognitive behavioral coaching, heightens these shared experiences and enables us to enjoy all our life experiences to their fullest.
